Modeling: reducing, testing, experiencing architecture , 2022
Elective Course HS22
The seminar focuses on the fabrication of architectural models not just as miniaturized buildings, but rather as ways to observe their environmental proprieties. Taking the realm of architectural acoustics as a sample domain, we will observe on one hand various ways of testing the behavior of sound within reduced models and on the other hand we will explore how digital tools, through parametric modeling, allowed virtual simulations of architectural projects. Both methods offer ways for technically anticipating and testing the acoustic result of architecture by synthesizing the complexity of a built project. These methods connect with a nineteenth century tradition of technical models conceived for scientific research and applied to architecture for experiencing building performances. Over the semester we will critically discuss key notions such analog, objectivity, illusion, immersion, simulation as a ground vocabulary to build on. Despite a shared way of thinking, virtual and empirical tools are nowadays used in a complementary way: the friction between these two approaches will be the object of the overall seminar.
